Sitting front row during designer fashion shows is both a privilege and a responsibility. As you get a closer look at the garments, you get to show off the outfit you’ve been planning for weeks. To keep composure (and by that I mean having a straight face unless you want to be photographed looking out of place) also becomes part of the catwalk front row experience.

With the limits of the pandemic forcing designers to make their presentations go virtual, fashion TikTok mimics the coveted seats as a fun exercise while in quarantine. Whether you’re looking for pure entertainment or serious fashion inspiration, take notes from these content creators who easily make it look like their actually sitting front row.

Andi, who inspired the “What I Would Wear Front Row At Different Designer Shows” TikTok thread, dressed with looks matching the energies of Saint Laurent, Alexander McQueen, and Prada. She hopes to sit front row one day.

TikTok favorite Eve-Lily popularized the trend by having more than five million views on her entries. She rocked the checks of Vivienne Westwood, quirkiness of Betsey Johnson, and vintage prints of Kate Spade.

Amy Roiland put a Valentine twist on her entry playing with pinks and reds for her looks on the runways of Betsy Johnson, Marc Jacobs, and Anna Sui.

Influencer Jessica Mercedes joined the bandwagon, too! Our favorites from her chic ensembles included the runways for Saint Laurent, Paco Rabanne, and Gucci.

Hayden Dejong’s fashion versatility got us hooked! From preppy to punk styles, he gave Burberry and Margiela a reason to invite him to their next shows.
